About this property

*VIRTUAL TOUR. A beautifully presented late Victorian detached house with an impressive recently extended open plan kitchen breakfast room. Extensive well-kept gardens with heated swimming pool, gym and outbuildings, extending in all to about 1.3 acres.


West Pitten is a small grouping of residences, several of which are listed, set off a private drive surrounded by farmland about two miles north of the well equipped and popular village of Yealmpton, surrounded by glorious South Hams countryside. The setting provides a true combination of privacy, with no passing traffic, and the security of a small hamlet.

The house has been in the same family ownership for 27 years. Numerous improvements have been carried out over the years, creating comfortable family accommodation and entertaining space on the ground floor, and a total of eight bedrooms on the upper floors, some of which have been used as studies and others as further sitting rooms. Planning consent has been obtained to create further ground floor living space. There are open views over the gardens and countryside beyond from all principal rooms.

Endearing features include retained architectural features, a comprehensively fitted custom built kitchen (with Aga) from the highly regarded Yealm Kitchens, a solid oak framed conservatory, useful utility space, the swimming pool and terrace space for al fresco dining, and the extensive outbuildings (featuring an inspection pit which will attract the vintage car enthusiast!) The generous grounds will be ideal for an active family or the gardening enthusiast.


For those requiring good access to the region the A38 Devon Expressway is only 5 minutes' drive away. Plymouth City and Waterfront is within 15 minutes' drive, while Exeter and the M5 is within 40 minutes normal driving time. The village of Yealmpton, within 5 minutes' drive to the south, is exceptionally well equipped, while the yachtsmen's haven of Newton Ferrers and the South Hams coast, unspoilt beaches and coastline are also within easy reach.
